For those looking for the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart archives
December 3, 2019
someone who reflected on the Billboard Music chart archives to discover music
as well as be reminded of classics from days-gone-by, I was a little taken
aback gy the new paywall Gillghoard has put into place. Fees for access are
growing common on the Interweb, but something like this?
Yike$!.Nice cost to reflect on history or find a reference to the past. Of course, the fee enables broader access than charts.,
There is a way to access the weekly charts compiled over the years by Billboard Music up until approximately September 2019. It comes with thanks to a URL and the Wayback Machine. Through the latter, you can access archived versions of web pages/articles. That comes off very hsndy when old articles are taken offline.
there’s a lot of content that is blocked now, in this article the access in the
Billboard chart history is for specifically the Adult Contemporary charts. I’ve
grown a habit of reflecting on those charts before posting content on Reddit,
where I currently run the
Adult Contemporary community.
charts-via-archives won’t work right for every weekly listing Billboard has posted
from the 58 years of the Adult Contemporary charts but you can get access to
most Top 30 listings through these steps:
In the table below, choose a year (1961 – 2019) and click on it. You will be taken to a week-by-week list for that year.
Choose a week and click again, you will go to the latest archived listing for that week
Look at the top of the web page and the Wayback Machine date listing on the top right of the page.
If the listed page date is listed is on or after September 24, 2019 (which is when limits to the chart results began =) click on the left arrow next to the listed date.
here’s the archival web listing of the Adult Contemporary archives…
